The Marriage was a light affair, distinguished mainly as a vehicle for Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. Cronyn's character, Ben Marriott, was a New York lawyer. His wife, Liz, had formerly been a buyer in a New York department store. Often plots revolved around her attempt to adjust to life as "just a housewife", or focused on problems with their children. They alternated viewpoints, Cronyn narrating one week, Tandy the next.
The Marriage, broadcast on the NBC network Sunday nights at 7:30 pm from October 4, 1953 until March 28, 1954 was based on the play The Four Poster which Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy had previously appeared on Broadway.
